Re: concentration of the solution

In order to solve this you need to find the molar mass so in order to do that you would need to convert the grams to moles then divide by the molar mass.

Re: Limiting Reactant and Limiting Reagent

When I was looking through the lecture I saw limiting reactants and limiting reagents used interchangeably so I believe they mean the same thing. In a chemical reaction the amount of product formed is limited by a reagent because the reaction will not continue without it.

There isn't technically a correct way to balance equations. The way I do it is I basically try different things till I get the outcome needed. I usually start with hydrogen or oxygen to start off and if not I just start from left to right.

The molecular formula can be the same as the empirical formula. With this said it still means that empirical formula cannot be bigger than the molecular formula.
